Had a couple hours in between classes this afternoon, so Nathan & Mitch & I decided to take a quick trip out on the Escambia. I took my new yak & the two of them went in a canoe. My mission was to hook into a pickerel on the fly. Opted for a big clouser tied with chartreuse & white bucktail with some red flash, & it turned out to be a hit! Hooked into three & landed two, one of which was hardly even worth mentioning, as you can tell from the picture... Haha. Did manage a fat 20'' one though, which gave me a nice fight! I know pickerel aren't anything to brag about, but they're the closest thing in Florida to the northern pike that I love fly fishing for back in Wisconsin. It was really great to actually hook into some fish on the fly & take a break from battling bull reds, plus the weather was perfect! Beautiful afternoon on the water.

Tally for the day:

Nathan: :no:
Mitch: :no:
Me: Tiny pickerel & a chunky 20'' pickerel

Tight lines everyone!

Heading out on the river again today, this time in search of the massive bowfin that I pulled the hook on last weekend!
